2 out of 5 eggsBad Analog line-out audio

Pros: Decent board for the price, provided you have no need for analog line out audio. The headphone out seems to work fine.

Cons: The analog line out on my board was noisy, and the line out jack was a bit looser than the other analog audio jacks on the back panel. I can hear a scraping noise from the speakers as I resize windows. This is probably digital noise feeding over into the analog audio sub-system. (to be kind it could have been a faulty cable. Check other reviews to see if I am the only one who saw this problem.) In any case I found a work around. I use the HDMI digital audio out by connecting my receiver to the analog audio jacks on my flat panel TV.

4 out of 5 eggsThe Asus Vanguard B85 is overclockable

Pros: People keep saying the Asus Vanguard B85 is not overclockable. That is completelely false. You can overclock any component you wish on the Asus Vanguard B85. There are simple one-click settings to overclock any of your overclockable components in the BIOS. A pro for this board is how easy it makes overclocking your CPU, GPU and RAM. Don't blame the board if you bought a locked CPU and weren't able to overclock it. It's your fault if you bought the wrong component. If your CPU is unlocked, you can easily overclock it with the Asus Vanguard B85.

Cons: None, unless you're the kind of person who buys a budget mobo and then complains when it doesn't have the ability to make you tea and doesn't have 4K-capable onboard graphics.

5 out of 5 eggsAlready bought a second one

Pros: Very stable
4 memory slots
On-board audio sounds great
Plenty of USB 3.0 ports
Lots of display connections (VGA / DVI / HDMI / DisplayPort)

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I built two systems for friends using this board already and both are performing fine. This motherboard is very high quality and I would recommend it if you are not looking to overclock and run your graphics cards in SLI.

5 out of 5 eggsASUS VANGUARD

Pros: So for I just wanted a upgrade, I put in OS Ubuntu 13 just to get rid of windows all together. Its damm great mobo! Its as fast as I thought, plus it had a pci slot, I made sure of that. (Yes I still have a few pci cards some where.)

Cons: None so for......................................

Other Thoughts: I put in 3.4ghz p4 in it. Ubuntu 13, I have 2 sicks 8gb each of Crucial ballstix ram/memory. With 2 more slots to fill. That's great to know for the further. I have 512mb Asus gpu pcie that I plan to putting in. Like I said, I wanted to do without windows all together. So I did. After this I don't know.
